The quintessential New England seafood venue. Nothing surprising on this menu and all arrived promptly and hot. Noticed most of the dishes were a little over cooked and my view into the kitchen showed a bunch of "chefs" and I think their girlfriends chatting... Well it was a quiet Monday night... My dining companion's linguine and clams looked just awesome... More

Love this place. We have been coming here for the last 6 years on our annual Cape Cod visit. The seafood is awesome. I have the same thing every time. The Lobster Ravioli. It never lets me down. The inside is cozy and the dining outside is great on a warm summer night. You're right by the harbor. The staff... More

This restaurant has both indoor and outdoor dining. We chose to eat indoors. Unfortunately there was no view from our table, which I think adds to my reflecting on the price more than I would have if we were able to enjoy the meal looking out around the area. The service was ok, I just felt that a couple of... More

Welcoming , family friendly, AND great food and service! Soups are wonderful. Lobster salad the best I've had. Steamed clams perfect . Everything served around us looked terrific as well.

We stopped in here for lunch before catching the ferry to Nantucket. Service was good and food was good. We ate fairly light, appetizer, soup and salad so didn't try as much of the menu as we are accustomed to. Very busy seem to do a good business.

I don't like seafood but my friends and spouse do. We have dined at Spanky's perhaps 6 times over the years. COnsistently good food. Nice walk along pier afterward.

Fabulous outdoor casual dining. We were seated in the owner's section on the waterfront=what a great way to start our vacation! Fried clams are crispy and hot, just delicious.

It's about time I have found this hidden gem that makes the most succulent and scrumptious seafood stew loaded with chunks of several types of seafood. Spanky's by far has the best seafood stew I have ventured across and I have tried many different places especially in the Cape including Marshside restaurant in Dennis which was overpriced and disappointing!
